About an American family with a summer cabin in the Stockholm archipelago. Information on island life, Swedish culture, design and building trends. And toilets.

We saw a number of official notices on the docks and on the Waxholms boat regarding changes to mail in the archipelago. Our current address is pretty simple: the name of island's dock (Aspö Brygga), the name of the boat line (Nämdölinjen), and a Stockholm postcode. But this colloquial address is being phased out in favor of the more official one.
The new address form uses the local kommun post code, bypassing 'Stockholm' altogether. So our new address will become:
Runmarö-Aspön 233 130 36 Nämdö Sweden
The changeover finishes next spring, but I thought it timely to get our new address out in advance of the Christmas card season!
